This film shows the Linehan family on a day trip via train to visit London Zoo. The family stop to view several of the animals including the Giant Panda, Polar Bear, Giraffe and Elephant. The children ride a camel and take a Larma carriage ride around the park. A child's birthday tea party at home (out of focus), and a visit to Preston Park Gardens complete the film.
